lanza, the monster who killed 20 children . and pbs is trying to find out why he did what he did and spotlighted the role his mother played. >> did you learn that nancy lanza had taken adam out of high school. >> yes. >> why do you think she took him out. >> i don't know, i pondered that for a long time. >> and you have a boy who was receiving a tremendous amount of support, suddenly, when she pulls him out of there, he loses all of those support groups and that's where he's fallen farther and farther into his proms. he didn't have the mental support group that he once had. >> bill: and john stossel, anchor, fox news channel. and this is the problem with adam lanza and people like him. there were warning signs, the teacher in the same school in newtown, they knew that he was a troubled kid, but his mother, for whatever reason, pulls him out of the school and then makes the situation worse, but in a free society his mother has a right to do whatever she wants to do. >> yes, and he was nowhere near the line where the state had any business to intervene. >> bill: he wasn't violent.
the democratic party, cnn, cbs, pbs, a few other outlets. i think it was really shocking that leon panetta testified that there were over 200 credible security threats for 9/11, right. he said it wasn't just benghazi. there were all these other possible threats. cairo embassy was on fire, being overrun. but not -- he said not only was no one scrambled to go to benghazi's rescue, no one was ready to be scrambled. there was no sufficient resources in the area for a thousand miles, panetta says. if you've got these warnings as dempsey said they knew about the cable that was sent to hillary clinton saying benghazi's not defensible. they knew about the 200 threats. why wasn't there a plane ready to be scrambled for an intervention in the first place? it's a very strange oversight that no one teams t seems to be particularly outraged. >> you heard panetta say you can't fly in f-16s and bomb the heck out of a place. you can use it psych ljl psychoy and fly it over the compound. they're very intimidating. >> no question. at the very least they could have been used to disperse the crowds. you hear

the document, the amazing documentary that will air on pbs called "makers" that you were both involved in making. and also the prattling on about day care. and everything from the labor movement, there's a transcendent sublime energy and dynamism. there's these shots at taking the streets in a big march and the confrontation hearings and things like that. and then if a movement is successful, it has to sort of institutionalize itself, right? you get boards of directors and you file. i'm curious, marlo, how you as a life-language activist, think about maintaining that energy, maintaining that sense of intense dynamic consciousness over a period of time? >> well, a lot of it is through legislation. one of the wonderful things about this country, the heart of the land does follow the law of the land. we don't even make jokes about minorities and women anymore because we passed laws that have made us feel differently about things. i think -- when i saw ruth bader ginsburg and sandra day o'connor talking about on the "makers" special about the laws. to me, that's an exciting part for making
